to welcome two experts. terry schmidt and steve clemens. -- gary schmidt and steve clemons. did his nomination surprise you? >guest: it did not. when you began looking at the transition from leon panetta and asking what kind of person who would have in there, someone who would command competency and stature. he seemed an obvious choice. host: news from "the new york times." pointing out to republicans who called him and appeasers based on what he said in a rock. he voted for the rock were but then turned against that conflict. the word appeasers seems to be pretty strong. -- iraq, but then turned aginst that conflict. the word "appeaser" seems to e pretde pretty strong. guest: the most important thing that happened during the war was the search. he voted against the surge. he called the worst mistake since the vietnam. when you're talking about putting somebody as secretary of defense and has such strong views, and wrong views, that is something that will be asking him. host: we're going to share with you some of the statements by senator haggle -- hagel. also, a number of speeches
was not granted pay -- steve harrison says an hour twitter page -- the national journal has a piece available online focusing on at this and other issues that the president will be facing in his second term. the headline -- seven democratic senators in conservative states facing tough reelection bids in 2014 said that the president has already had some unpleasant stumbling blocks within his own party. and gun control, the white house is calculating that it will be exceedingly difficult to pass broad measures. that is according to the new york times. rockefeller announced his retirement on friday, making his seat vulnerable for the first time since 1959. this story is available at nationaljournal.com. emery joins us from michigan, the independent line. host: good morning. i just wanted to know, how does the american people think it is totally obama's galt we are in debt? we had things going on such as the war that caused so much money. that -- that cost so much money. we have jets, we have so much put out to protect us. how could people be so upset, wondering if obama will be able to go throug
we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of iran. hagel ruled out a military strike would be unreasonable, it would be foolish to do that. something that the obama administration despite fact i think they have taken a rather accommodating and patien
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
. this is a long time coming. this is a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemons from "the washington note" and the new america foundation. steve writes at "the atlantic magazine" where he is washington editor at large. thank you so much for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement today that u.s. troops are going to change mission, move to a support role this spring. we had known that it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today. do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> well, i think that the president has looked at the -- he just won election. he has looked at the political tea leaves in the united states, and there is not very much support for this. and i think he is making a very important strategic judgment that the timing, that you've got american men and women still on the front line. they're still going to be in danger, but there is nothing strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. and i think for t
coming, a long time coming, a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemens from the new america foundation. he writes for "atlantic" magazine, washington editor at large. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement that troops will move to a support role this spring, we had known it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today, do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> i think that the president looked at the tea leaves in the united states, not much support for this. making a strategic judgment that the timing that you have american men and women still on the front line, going to still in danger, but nothing strate c strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. for those people who thought barack obama would acquiesce to permanent war, they are totally wrong this is a very important day. i was re-reading "the drift: the unmooring of american military power," written by one rachel mad yao today,
to hearing from them. let me introduce them briefly. steve gluckstern is the chairman of each resolution partners, a firm developed proposal to reduce market principles using eminent domain and is in discussion with municipal governments across the country. prior to work with mrp, steve cofounded alternative asset range that firms is a trust company llc and z partners as well as the specialty financial reinsurer center. congressman brad miller is a recently retired representative from north carolina's 13th district. during this fight turns -- five terms in the house, congressman miller served as a leading champion for consumers in the fight against predatory mortgage lending and servicing practices. tom deutsch is the executive director of the american securitization forum, an association for investors, issuers and stakeholders in the securities industry has opposed the call for eminent domain for marketers. previously tom was the associate at cadwallader llp and mickey mouse in llp, where he worked on finance offerings and residential mortgage securitizations. jim carr is a senior polic
closed doors. we'll have the latest from the trial ahead. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> the horrific rape case that has sparked protest in india and outraged around the world moved closer to trial. the picture of the five suspects in the van was the only video from today. that's because there was so much chaos inside the courtroom, that a magistrate sealed the proceedings off. she also slapped a gag order on reporters. we'll have more on that in a moment. first, the rage of this attack is unleashed. it is important to talk about, and it is really extraordinary, the reaction. you have to keep in mind rape is very common in india. in 2011, there were more than 24,0
of the courthouse, a gentleman by the name of steve hernandez, who is the father of victim rebecca wingo, he shotted out rot in hell holmes. the judge called everybody back in later to ask if he would be able to refrain from those further outbursts and warning everybody not to have any further outbursts in court. so they will be back in court in march. >> important to note, though, there was no jury present in the room to hear that outburst, so hopefully just harmless. but certainly not acceptable. casey wian, thank you very much. >>> now of course the question becomes is james holmes insane? is he crazy? or is he crazy like a fox? how do you begin to defend someone like holmes? this man, paul callan, knows and he'll talk to me about it in just a moment. leave tonight. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and how happy are they jimmy? happier than eddie money running a travel agency. get happy. get geico. fifteen minute
by griffin and others, steve clemens who's notable in washington on foreign policy has argued that hagel is progay and very committed to these issues. this will, again, wash out in the discussions. likely this is going to be a touchstone in the near term. but hopefully as the commentary goes forward, people will see that chuck hagel is the right man for the job. >> we talked about the democrats who have some concerns of their own. there's the new political article that cites a senate democratic official as saying this. quote, i don't think dems just fall in line. ultimately he may be confirmed. at this stage his fate is totally up in the air. he will really have to work hard to overcome some of his previous statements and positions. if you take us inside that confirmation room, for most americans who may not know chuck hagel very well, who's the person they're going to see? what will be his demeanor when he's answering some of these tough questions? >> they're going to see an american hero. someone who won two purple hearts. an enlisted man in vietnam. a man who has shrapnel still in his
that aside, yes, steve, this has become the norm. in this day and age, nothing ever happens until that has to happen because the hyper partisanship and the polarization in congress, and so while we all were glad on new year's day or new year's eve this other issue as we also know we have three other issues coming up by the end of march that we have to deal with. >> this is from tom manley and norm freehery. it's worse than it looks and they have five myths about 112 congress and i want to share one of them because a lot of references in the 80th congress referred to as the do nothing congress which by the way past 906 laws including the marshall plan which they say was one of the most consequential in the 20th century. it created the defense department and the national security with the sweeping reorganization on the security apparatus in contrast in the 112 congress enacted the smallest number in the modern history. including the 40 that were post office and commemorative resolutions. >> we have plenty of laws and the problem we have is some are stupid and we need to get rid of to read th
people and wounding 58 other people in the theater last july. steve barton was in the theater when holmes opened fire. i should say holmes is alleged to have opened fire. he has not been convicted in the case. steven was able to escape. he was shot. nice to have you back. we talked about the newtown shooting. nice to have you back again. tell me about your injuries in the shooting. >> i was shot in the shotgun basically in the face and upper torso and the neck. i currently still have eight shotgun pellets still in there. >> so when you hear about this hearing, which could be, if he doesn't stand trial, right, if he's found mentally inexcept, this could be the only opportunity for a lot of evidence in the case to come forward. how do you feel about this? >> i obviously don't want him to walk, but as long as he doesn't see the light of day again, it doesn't really much concern me beyond that. to me, i see the trial as being an opportunity to learn more about what happened that night beyond just my own personal recollection. >> what do you remember? is it like for you specifically, is it a b
quickly. >> stephanie: yeah. wow. steve doocy. >> i think you like a lot of people, joshua are worried that the federal government is going to come after our guns. >> it's something we have seen time and time again in history. [ sighs ] >> oh, god. >> stephanie: see obama is just like hitler. >> yeah. >> stephanie: and pol pot. >> stephanie: okay. then. a little history lesson so far. gretchen carlson and donald trump. >> i wonder if john boehner and others have reached out to people like yourself and others? >> it's not really about expert negotiators. this is almost common sense. this is like basic 101 common sense. >> stephanie: ah. >> what? >> expert negotiators like trump. >> stephanie: who went bankrupt with a casino. >> yeah that's hard to do. >> stephanie: and guest host larry o'connell. >> he was guest hosting for david miller. >> stephanie: basically john boehner became nancy pelosi without the charm. >> for the last two years. and let's give him credit you know -- there's no facelift with john boehner. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i see that's the bar for the
, but it is not absolute. -- confluence of interest, but it is not absolute. host: steve, republican collar. caller: i would like to know what countries have recently gone oil contracts over this whole thing. -- recently gotten oil contracts over this whole thing. guest: there is not a lot of oil in afghanistan. there are huge mineral rights, which have been purchased to great extent by china. the oil in iraq has been purchased by a number of countries. they have purchased the rights to extract and sell that oil. the iraqi industries on an upswing right now, and it is one of the reasons that the world prices have stabilized, and some suspect may even go down. the united states did not do a particularly good job of getting its share of that business for a number of reasons. and certainly, in afghanistan, the united states is not benefiting economically from the investment is making. it is likely that china will be the beneficiary long term of the u.s. affected afghanistan if afghanistan does stabilize because of the mineral resources there. for those who suspect that we conduct wars for economic intere
. and the white house -- "the wall street journal" writer who sat with him, steve moore from the editorial page, said boehner looked battle weary. and he really took some shots at the president, talking about how he was overly ideological, quoting back how when he kept saying to the president, we have a spending problem, speaker boehner says that president obama said to him, you know, john, i'm tired of hearing you say that. whatever bond these two had over the fact that they both had difficult constituencies seems to be broken. >> mike allen going to be back in our next hour to talk dangling participles. >> gerunds. >> alex has the definition of gerund. he's going to tell a waiting america that definition now. >> a gerund is a form that is derived from a verb but that functions as a noun. >> oh, wow! i like it when you say it like that, alex. >> i think we've got a spending problem. >> that's weird. >>> up next -- >> and joe, mika, real quick, also just while i've been on the air, we've been told that along with senator hagel today, the president also will be nominating john brannen to head th
